Circle gets the Square Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

When you want to make a bold statement, use these geometric dangling earrings. The dark gunmetal chain and deep red Swarovski pearls create a dramatic palette perfect for late night events.

Step one:
Cut the gunmetal-plated square links on round cable chain into one 6-inch long piece using side cutters.

Step two:
Thread a Swarovski 3mm round pearl in Bordeaux onto a TierraCast® 2-inch gauge black finish pewter head pin. Repeat this process for nine more 3mm pearls, ten Swarovski 4mm round pearls in Bordeaux, ten Swarovski 3mm faceted rounds in Crystal AB and eight Swarovski 4mm faceted rounds in Crystal AB. Use wrapped loops to attach all of your beaded head pins to your chain in a random fashion.

Step three:
Fold your chain in half and connect your two ends together using a 5mm gunmetal-plated 18 gauge open jump ring. Watch our Handy Tip video if you need help with jump rings. Attach the folded end to a gunmetal-plated earwire with ball and coil using chain nose pliers.
